Abstract:
In proportioning concrete mixtures with the aid of computers, due regard must be given to such parameters as rheological properties of the mix and intensity of vibration. Translation of given relations into mathematical formulas presented here makes it possible to use automatic computers to calculate parameters of the mix. Simple relations are summarized in flow chart and block diagrams, and the calculations necessary for checking and adjusting the mix are introduced. After a simplification of the theory, the derived relations call be applied in practical production of ready-mixed concrete and in batching plants of large construction firms which have computers available. The whole process of computation is demonstrated by practical examples.
